The Guernsey Community Savings has been recommended (a number of times) for its dedication to financial inclusion.

Imagine life without a bank account…
Since it was set up as a charity in September 2020, Guernsey Community Savings has provided life-changing support to more than 100 islanders who had previously been financially excluded from society because they didn’t have a bank account.We ensure that each of our clients has an easy-to-use online account, a debit card, and a means of building up savings.
Our vision is that no-one in the Bailiwick of Guernsey will be financially excluded from being part of and contributing to their community.

We help people who have no access to banking, either because the bank has closed their account, or because they have a poor credit history, or because they simply don’t have the documentation required to open a regular bank account.

Without a bank account, people can find it difficult to rent somewhere to live or be employed. And as retailers move away from cash, and goods and services move online they are excluded not just from financial services but from the opportunity to access products at the optimum prices.

We also offer financial management education to those who need it.

If you know someone who would benefit from our service, please ask them to get in touch. And if you’d like to support our work, we’d love to hear from you.
